watched a horse run around the other day and thought "yep thats the Blue Diamond favourite"... looked up the odds today and is at 21-1?? spilt my coffee all over Mrs Chilli... the horse, Star Spangled Banner... as impressive as you will see!! I would advise getting on early before he has a run or two!!
By CHOISIR out of GOLD ANTHEM... not sure if anyone remembers Gold Anthem but she was potentially one of the more serious fillies to ever glue on a shoe from S.A... blinding speed but never got serious on raceday.. from memory she only had a couple of starts before going chronic shin sore... VAIN was her grandaddy...
So we have blinding speed from mum and stamina high cruising speed off CHOISIR... Blue Diamond stacks up on breeding... the horse itself was impressive in his only start leading the field around on COX PLATE day in the INGLIS... the only other horses to race on the speed and win that day were LUCKY SECRET and the mighty MALDIVIAN (who will prove all you doubters wrong this prep)... why its 21-1 at the moment i dont know... but im happy about it!!
Hi Munty, I've not chickened out - been away for a few days R&R with the wife, and a couple of good friends. Will now look closely at the results versus our top fives and then get back to you. Think you've probably won though and still getting over the shocking run of Rostova - still can't work it out!!
Andy will try and make sure i remember to buy your tips on saturday. If you want since its 2-1 in my favor i will bring it down to 1-0 so i dont buy your tips and you only have to buy my tips once since i won 2 bets between us in the 1 day. And PokerTrav im gonna have a good study Friday got the day off so i suggest Saturday the day to invest in my tips thanks to gold water i hope i hit gold on the weekend :) GL ALL.
[Munty] I just posted a detailed compilation of the finishing order of the BD vs our top fives. Unfortunately it came up blank, so will try again later when got more time. Ps: this website now worse than previous one
Hi Munty I've compiled the results of our top five selections for the BD against the official final results as published on the Racing Victoria Website, and allocated points for each: toptipster: 1Rostova (5th) = 13 minus 4 = 9pts 2Real Saga (2nd) = 13 minus 0 = 13pts 3Corsaire (9th) = 13 minus 6 = 7pts 4Come Hither (13th) = 13 minus 9 = 4pts 5Reward For Effort (1st) = 13 minus 4 = 9pts Total = 42pts Munty: 1Real Saga (2nd) = 13 minus 1 = 12pts 2Come Hither (13th) = 13 minus 11 = 2pts 3Rostova (5th) = 13 minus 2 = 11pts 4Reward For Effort (1st) = 13 minus 3 = 10pts 5Irish Lights (12th) = 13 minus 7 = 6pts Total = 41pts toptipster wins by a short half head!!
Ok Andy no worries i will buy your tips this saturday you do the same then you follow up on my tips next Saturday. Wheres Pokertrav i hope he doesnt think he is getting out of it aswell lol a bet is a bet scan your ticket lol.
Hey top tipster i have no clue what you and munty have goin on there but i have had a quick scan over your results i think they are. Why is it when real saga came second he lost 1 point on muntys working out and and your points. eg real saga came second your points and muntys point are different also with the results of come hither. what is the go
Hi PharohDealer. The aim was to see who could get their top five nearest to the final result of the BD. toptipster had Real Saga rated 2nd and he came 2nd. Therefore toptipster earned maximum points of 13 (total no of runners). Munty had Real Saga rated Ist, but he came 2nd. Therefore Munty earned 13 minus 1pt = 12pts and so on with all of our top five rated runners. With Come Hither Munty rated him 2nd but he came 13th. Thus he earned 13 minus 11 = 2pts (the difference between his rated position and his final position). toptipster rated Come Hither 4th, thus earned 13 minus 9 = 4 (the difference between his rated position and his final position).Hope this is clear. Good punting
